    I got asked this about 4 times this week at college... does anyone else find it awkward and don't know what to say? I reply " Alright [name] " but then they ignore like if I'm being rude.

    "Alright [name]?"

    In my head: “Great thanks! You?" *Proceeds to start funny, interesting, intellectual conversation*
    In real life: “um.. yeah.. I, mean, I... Er, I'm good. Um... Yeah. Bye."

    I think "alright [name]?" is rhetorical like "how do you do?" but less formal. I answer "alright" or "alright mate".

    If they are actually asking how I am, then they need to expand the question for example "are you alright [name]?" To which I would respond "yeah, not bad" or similar.
